The Beaver State Podcast Episode 112: A Song of Crawdads

October 14, 2022

Perhaps a "Game of Thrones" and a "Where the Crawdads Sing" mashup was overreaching for this episode of the Beaver State Podcast, but we're going to run with it, because Oregon's native Signal crawdad is losing its battle against more aggressive non-native crawdads brought into the state, some as long ago as the early 1900s, while in Europe and other parts of the world where Signal crawdads have been introduced, they're a plague-carrying weapon of destruction against native crawdads there. So, stick with us as ODFW Invasive Species Coordinator Rick Boatner tells us the story of crawdads in Oregon. Although he says crayfish, because he's originally from the South.
